    Excellent. The school bans are ridiculous considering what kids now access online. You can’t hide the world from your kids. But you can teach your kids how to develop their own values and judgement so they can deal wisely with the world.

    Let these fascist continue on with their book bans, their children are already forced to have technology in their faces, they can just research it online, will they move on to banning computers then?! Their children look at adult content online too, what are they doing about that?! The ignorance of these fascist.

    She's right about being creative and moving. I create stories in my head. When I take my daily walks, I usually start with a story and finish it as I walk up the stairs to my house.

    DeSanus contributed to this book ban nonsense. He lost to Disney. He lost to woke. His quest for national political office is sinking faster than the titanic..

    Parents upset about sexually explicit books in their children's elementary school libraries is NOT book banning! IT'S PREVENTING CHILD ABUSE!

    "I tell my students, it's not difficult to identify with someone like yourself, somebody next door who looks like you. What's more difficult is to identify with someone you don't see, who's very far away, who's a different color, who eats a different kind of food. When you begin to do that, then literature is really performing its wonders."

    "I read to entertain myself, to educate myself, as a way to enlighten myself–as a way to challenge my beliefs about myself."
